An infinite class of quadratic APN functions which are not equivalent to power mappings

L. Budaghyan and C. Carlet and P. Felke and G. Leander

Abstract: We exhibit an infinite class of almost perfect nonlinear quadratic polynomials from $\mathbb{F}_{2^n}$ to $\mathbb{F}_{2^n}$ ($n\geq 12$, $n$ divisible by 3 but not by 9). We prove that these functions are EA-inequivalent to any power function. In the forthcoming version of the present paper we will proof that these functions are CCZ-inequivalent to any Gold function and to any Kasami function, in particular for $n=12$, they are therefore CCZ-inequivalent to power functions.
